If you are looking for bacon, eggs, hashbrowns and toast, this is the place. Extensive breakfast menu includes omelets, pancakes and french toast. Service and food were great. Coffee not so much.

We went to Filmores on this trip and everything was as we left it 1 year ago, which was good. The same waitstaff, decor, food all were good and what we've come to expect. Filmores is the type of place that you go when you want your "usual". They know who you are and can kind of anticipate what the... More

You would never think to stop at this little location tucked in the back of a large parking lot but it was WAY worth the stop. We stopped and had breakfast twice during our honeymoon and the portions are large and cooked fresh. I wish we had one around the corner! So much better than Ihop!

Four of us ate had lunch and really found the food very tasty, well presented, at a very reasonable price. The atmosphere is great, I also truly enjoyed viewing all of the paintings of what looked like local homes. Would suggest a visit to anyone in the area.

This was my second visit to J.W. Filmore's; I first ate here last year for breakfast, and had an amazing time eating amazing food. When I ate here for lunch today, however, I was deeply disappointed. After reading about the "homemade meatloaf" (like mother made it), I excitedly ordered the dish. I know restaurant's are not known for making the... More

Filmore's resides in an older building, but the interior and the booths have no tears, splits, or other wear and tear. For breakfast, we tried the Farmer's Special ($5.75) ... 2 eggs, hash browns, bacon, and 3 5-inch buttermilk pancakes. A coffee-filled carafe comes table side so you can refresh your cup as you like. The waitress was very pleasant... More

great service. Friendly staff. Great menu. Perfect location right across from the hotel. We walked! Running across 131 was a treat for sure!

Great local "home cooked" meals. Normally to get old fashioned breakfast, cooked the way you ordered it.

This was a very nice and clean restaurant. Had lots of breakfast choices. The service was great, food was great and reasonably prices. Seemed to be a "neighborhood" establishment where the servers and customers knew one another.

We arrived very cold and hungry. Menu has a wide variety of standard foods. The service was good, the food hot and tasty and very reasonably priced.
